New Delhi: State support to terrorism by a neighbouring country poses a serious challenge to India, but it has displayed capability to “disrupt and deter” terror networks and their patrons, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said on Monday.
Addressing a conference, Singh also announced creation of 10 new defence wings in as many Indian missions so that more Defence Attachés (DAs) could be appointed.
On threat of terrorism, Singh, in a clear reference to Pakistan, said continued presence of terrorist infrastructure and state support to terrorists in the country have tested India’s patience.
“As a responsible and powerful nation, India had displayed that it was able to disrupt and deter the activities of terrorist groups and their patrons,” the Defence Minister said.
